North Eastern Centre AGM

21st Aug 2017
North Eastern

The North-Eastern Centre AGM, held at Durham County Council Direct Service facility, welcomed new Centre Chairman Gary Chisholm, Engineering Director with Stagecoach North East.

Outgoing Centre Chairman Derek Atkinson hosted committee members, SOE members and Michael Hurst, SOE Marketing and Communications Manager, present to discuss a range of issues, including collaborative measures to help regional activities.

In his final report, Derek Atkinson paid tribute to the support he received from colleagues during his two years in office and, particularly, the support given by local and national business.

Derek expressed his delight at the positive impact of the technical lectures and charitable work, carried out during his term.

He said: “My highlight was to make a financial presentation to the North-East Air Ambulance at our 2016 Dinner Dance and Awards evening; an organisation that conducts life-saving duties, which the area and industry benefit from greatly.”

Derek wished Gary every success as the new Centre Chairman.
